– Donny van de Beek has been told to leave Man United due to his limited game time
– The Netherlands international has made eight substitute appearances out of his ten matches for United
– The Reds Devils will take on Man City in the semi finals of the Carabao Cup at Old Trafford
Donny van de Beek has been advised to pack his bags if he does not feature in Manchester United’s semi final League Cup match against Man City, according to De Telegraaf, quoted by Mirror.
The Dutch star made a summer move to Old Trafford from Ajax in the summer and has made ten appearances, eight of them as a substitute.
The 23-year-old’s adviser Sjaak Swart has frowned at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s treatment on the Netherlands international.
“A substitute, I don’t like it at all. I couldn’t do it myself, substituting in with four minutes left to play. Then you’d better let me sit down.”
Another Dutch legend Marco van Basten also said:
“Donny shouldn’t have gone to United. When you’re a good player you want to play every week.
“It’s really bad for a player like Donny to play six or seven games this year. That’s shocking for your rhythm.”
Former Arsenal star Rafael van der Vaart took a swipe at Van de Beek’s and Solskjaer’s selection:
“Wait? Patience? Would you like it if you are stuck on the bench? The players in front of you can’t even kick a marble and [Solskjaer] still does not put you in the team.
“I would not be happy. I would certainly not be enjoying my football there. Look at the player Donny is and how he performs at international level. I would not have it.”
Van de Beek started in United’s EFL Cup clash against Everton and played in the last few minutes in the win against Leeds United.
But he has not had game time in United’s games against Wolves and Aston Villa during the Christmas and New Year’s period.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will reportedly tell four of his players that they are now surplus to requirement and are free to leave during the January transfer window.
According to The Athletic quoted by Sport Bible United are ready to listen to offers Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo, Sergio Romero, and Jesse Lingard.
The four stars have barely made an appearance for the Red Devils with Lingard playing two League Cup matches.
